The Facebook tale "The Social Network" has won top honors at the Golden Globes with four prizes, including best drama and director, solidifying its prospects as an Academy Awards favorite.
Winning the dramatic lead-acting prizes Sunday were Colin Firth for the British monarchy saga "The King's Speech" and Natalie Portman for the psychosexual thriller "Black Swan."
Lead-acting honors for the Globes' musical or comedy categories went to Annette Bening for the lesbian-family story "The Kids Are All Right" and Paul Giamatti for the curmudgeon tale "Barney's Version."
The boxing drama "The Fighter" earned both supporting actor Globes, for Christian Bale and Melissa Leo.
Oscar nominations come out January 25.
